Partners and Community Organisations

The Multiply Project has teamed up with The Onsite Construction Academy to provide fortnightly ‘How to Use a Tape Measure’ sessions. The tailored, skills-based, workshops focus on the accurate use of measuring tapes, encompassing both metric and imperial measurements. Construction trainees are provided with tape measures for further practice and on-site use.

As part of our work with hostels across Cardiff, the Multiply Team have been delivering fun-packed 4-day sessions to hostel residents called ‘Cook & Create’. During the course residents have the opportunity to develop their life skills whilst gaining confidence in the kitchen. Participants also get to build their own flat pack furniture and practice their DIY skills. As part of the programme, we’ve been able to gift hostel residents their own supermarket vouchers, air fryers and IKEA furniture so that they can continue to develop these skills independently.

The Multiply Team have worked with schools across the city to deliver non-accredited versions of our ‘Cooking on a Budget’ course. Over the course of 3 weeks, pupils are able to join in with the 3-hour long sessions alongside their parents as a fun engagement activity.  Again, with a focus on making meals more cost effective, the children have great fun picking the meals they love, and decorating cakes to share with their friends.

The Multiply Project has teamed up with Splott Community Volunteers at the STAR Centre to provide weekly Arts & Craft sessions for their volunteers, community members and adults supported the Innovate Trust.

The Multiply Team have arranged to visit a number of Older Persons Accommodation across Cardiff to deliver fun number games for residents on a regular basis. Residents will enjoy a range of activities from cribbage and colour by numbers, to a game of darts and coaster decorating.
